Since my latest update to the account of Utricularia a few more taxa have been described, resurrected from synonymy, or ranges of known species have been extended. These are summarized below in chronological order of publication (species accepted by the author of this text in bold, species considered synonyms in regular font), which today brings the total species number of Utricularia to at least 235 (making it the second largest genus of carnivorous plants, only rivalled by the approx. 250 species of Drosera).
